Highlights

My voice has been described as educated, "NPR", articulate, kind, friendly, and clear.
I have a background in semi-professional singing and an undergraduate minor in theater that has prepared me for vocal care, vocal production, quality of tone and enunciation that is integral to my vocal production work. Neither high nor low, the mid-tone of my vocal pitch is appealing and easy to listen to for brief or prolonged intervals of time.

Service Description

I am a perfectionist. I will begin by asking you to describe your needs and vision for the project. Who is the audience for this voice narration? What is the energy level, mood, tone that will best communicate the message or story you want to share with others? What is your timeline? Once I am clear on your expectations and objectives, I will work with you to establish an appropriate schedule that will meet your objectives and give me the time I need to prepare a professional product for your. My workflow is one in which i review, record, proof, edit and proof again before releasing the file. Your satisfaction is my concern. Your file(s) will be produced to your specifications for file format and loudness.
